G, M. G. (n.d.). The Promised Key. Retrieved from

Description: The Promised Key is a Rastafari movement tract by Leonard P. Howell, a Jamaican preacher; renowned as a Jamaican “John The Baptist”. Published around 1935 under Howell's Hindu pen name G.G. for Gangun Guru Maragh, meaning teacher of famed wisdom, the tract bears some similarities to the Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy, without the stream-of-consciousness language, long opaque abbreviations, and repetition. Most significantly, the identities of 'King Alpha and Queen Omega' were transposed from Fitz Balintine Pettersburg and his wife as in the Royal Parchment Scroll, to Emperor Haile Selassie and Empress Menen Asfaw. This was one of the key innovations of the Howellites, and is today an article of faith of Rastafari.
